I absolutely love putting together the Kids Life curriculum. It’s fun to take the lesson each week and make it come to life with fun crafts, object lessons and other activities. I’m always on Pinterest looking for the most fun and engaging activities that relate to each week’s lesson. There is so much I want to do better when it comes to building a curriculum that helps grow kids who know and love Jesus for life. Ellie helped me design this sensory bin for our preschool lesson on Moses. The kids were given the opportunity to retell the part of the story when God told Moses to raise his staff to part the Red Sea. They used the balloons on the sides to pull up and part the sea. I found our little Moses character at Goodwill. While putting the Moses lessons together I learned something I missed out on all these years. When the Israelites were standing in front of the Red Sea before it was parted, there was an army behind them getting closer. They couldn’t get away because there seemed to be no way out. The Israelites were scared but Moses told them “God will make a way for us to escape!” He did. Just then the clouds moved behind the Israelites to block them from the army coming after them. The Red Sea parted and the Israelites were free. God always makes a way. We can sometimes be like the Israelites scared because we hear the army getting closer. We have no idea how God might be blocking that army from us while He makes a way out. Even if the army is right at your heels don’t stop trusting that God will part the Sea in front of you.
